While I am still baffled by the grammar, I find it funny that I (uncounsciously and probably wrongly) ended my own sentence with a preposition such as Stitchawl's Nebraskan Retirement Option:

In my research, I found this to also be common to Texans:

A Texan professor and an Oxford professor are chilling at a conference bar. The Texan professor, bored, looks to the Oxford professor and strikes up a conversation. “So there partner, where y’all from?” Oxford prof. replies, pushing his glasses to his nose: “Well, in reply to your query, I hail from Oxford. In addition, where I come from, we never end our sentences in a preposition.” The Texan prof. blinks once, shrugs his shoulders and drawls, “My apologies! What I mean to say is ‘where y’all from, asshole?’”
